First Week of May

"About to be Peeled"
5 x 5 oil on Gessobord
One of my artist friends on Facebook said she like my scratching when it was more in a "destroying mode" instead of the outline scratching I have been playing with.  So this was for her....exaggerated edges and a WHOLE lot of scratching and destroying.  It was soooo fun though.
"Purple Pansies"
6 x 6" oil on Gessobord
I painted a similar "pose" of these pansies last year in pastel.  I wanted to see how I would do with oil and all the complex (for me) little shapes.  It sold in less than 24 hours and I'm happy.  It's off to North Carolina as soon as its dry.

We had yet another spring snowstorm this week.  The "pool guy" is starting to work on the swimming pool in our complex.  It was odd to see the turquoise of the painted pool, with patio furniture on the pool deck all with about 6" of snow. Ah....spring!
